**THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN (via Alice Huitt Preston)

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others cried
For loved ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

RE: Peters Family
Hey, Davis;

I am not kin. I drive past this small family graveyard every day on my way to work. It is pretty well hidden, but it was shown to me when I was visiting a friend who owns the adjacent property. I just thought that perhaps someone out there might want to know where the family is, so I created the memorials.

Let me know if there is something I can do for you.

RE: picture
All I have are Atlas and Lucy. I don't even know who all of them are. Harriet I think married a Warren, Mary Ann married a Farmer and one married a Granade. I corresponded with George Warren, but his address is changed. I have corresponded with a Farmer descendant, but I don't think she has any.

John Rogers memorial photo
Why did you remove the photo of Rogers Ferry from John Rogers' memorial #61304439? We were very glad to see it. Wesley Martin #47280207

Isham Stanley Jr . Sr
I see you have the same photo posted to Isham Stanley Sr as you do for his son. Do you happen to know which Isham the photo is of?

I'm tracking down our personal history and it's a wonderful photo; I just want to make sure I refer to the correct gentleman.

Thank you,
Tanya

I have a question or two abt. a photo you posted to her memorial and and is verifyied by WPA records and my own research. That photo is on my memorial. She IS buried in Colonial Cemetery in Savannah, Chatham Co., GA and that is where I have her. Now someone has her in another cemet. and used your photo, memorial #50213753. But that one says "IN MEMORY OF" so that leads me to believe that there is no burial.

I was questioning why someone copied your photo? Do you know this other person? A lot of folks copy the work of others and that is something I don't do.

Thanks for listening.

JoAnn
